This recipe comes from another cooking blog that I check out regularly, Real Mom Kitchen. I think this is the first of her recipes that I have tried and the cookies turned out great! I will definitely go back to find more things to cook. These cookies are rich and delicious!!!
3/4 butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
32 mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the baking soda, salt & flour; set aside. With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and two sugars. Add the eggs one at a time. Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet and use your hand to slightly flatten each cookie. Cook for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and lightly press about 6 to 8 pieces of the chopped peanut butter cups onto each cookie. Return the cookies to the oven to bake for another 2 minutes. Cool on the sheet for about 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack. I like to use two cookie sheets so I can bake the next batch without waiting for the first to cool. Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
